Cottages in Langdale

Langdale Valley in the Lake District is over 12,000 acres of land, encompassing 10 National Trust farms and runs from west Ambleside through Clappersgate, Skelwith Bridge, Elterwater and Chapel Stile. A substantial amount of our Lake District cottages and lodges are located within the valley, and boast some spectacular views. White-washed farmhouses are dotted across the Langdale Valley, and our very own Slater’s Cottage is one of them. Located in Little Langdale, which was the home of a prominent slate mining industry in the 18th century, this fabulous three-bed cottage also has room for three dogs, who are always welcome in the Lake District. If you are planning on bringing your furry friend on your holiday to Langdale, check out our dog-friendly cottages in the Lake District. 

Walking is, naturally, one of the area’s biggest attractions and how could it not be when there are so many dramatic fells to explore? Especially when they have such fantastic names like Pike O’Blisco and Pike O’Stickle. All of our properties in Langdale are in prime locations for rambling through this rugged environment, whether you fancy a leisurely stroll, or you’re setting out to climb Scafell. Our local team recommend our cottage Lingmoor Lookout, in Chapel Stile. This bespoke cottage is on a raised platform and looks out directly onto the Great Langdale Valley and across to Lingmoor Fell, giving you a sense of the full scale of this momentous area. 

Aside from the awe-inspiring vistas, there’s also plenty to do, places to explore and eateries to recharge and refresh in across Langdale. If you fancy getting out on a bike, rather than on foot, you can hire cycles from the National Trust Campsite in Great Langdale. If water is more your thing, you can go out for a swim at Stickle Tarn. The Stickle Tavern nearby is also the first pub to be both owned and run by the National Trust and is stocked full of local Cumbrian food and drink. 

If you do venture to the top of the Langdale Pikes, it is best to be clued up on the history of them so that you can fully appreciate their grandeur and significance. The slate on top of the pikes is said to have been used for tools and weapons by the Neolithic people who once lived there. If you fancy delving deeper into this history, be sure to visit Ruskin Museum in Coniston and Tullie House Museum in nearby Carlisle. John Ruskin described the valley as '…the loveliest rock scenery, chased with silver waterfalls, that I ever set foot or heart upon', and a visit to Langdale will surely have you agreeing with him.
